Corn Chowder

I love a good soup on a blustery, fall or winter day! Although the creamier and meater the better usually takes precedence with me, I have been trying to eat healthier and so when I saw that this was a weight watchers meal I thought that I would try it... It was so good that I went back for a little more and since it is so low in points - it was fine with me!! It had wonderful flavor and was definitely filling!

Corn Chowder
(recipe found at

2 (15 ounces) cans reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 (1 pound) bag frozen corn
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large (10 ounces) baking potato, peeled and diced
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
4 slices crisp cooked bacon, crumbled (can omit if no meat meal)
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Combine the broth, corn, onion, potato, celery, bacon and thyme in a slow cooker. Cook on low until the potatoes are nearly tender, about 6 hours; raise heat to high and cook until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes more. Stir in sour cream and pepper; heat through, 15 minutes more.

Serves: 8
Points: 2 per 1 cup
